The porosity/binder ratio, η/Civ, is possibly the main development in the field of soil stabilization over the last many decades. η/Civ is shown to be the controlling factor of artificially cemented materials mechanical behavior. Experimental results were presented to highlight this ratio applicability for determination of artificially cemented soils unconfined compressive strength, splitting tensile strength, triaxial compression behavior, shear and volumetric stiffness, stress-dilatancy behavior and strength envelopes. Moreover, fiber reinforcement use and its benefits were presented as a solution for geotechnical problems and as a future challenge to be incorporated into engineering practice.
